Not even retirement can stop Jim Carrey from being Sonic’s archnemesis Dr. Robotnik. The legend himself will be returning for Sonic The Hedgehog 3, coming to theaters in December 2024.

After seeing a first look at the teaser and logo for Sonic 3, we got hit with the news of Jim Carrey reprising his role as Dr. Robotnik as fast as lightning. Somehow Robotnik seems to be returning from the dead, for those of you who have seen Sonic 2, you know what I’m referring to. Then again, Robotnik’s body was never found. Perhaps, he didn’t die after all. Either way, he’s been patiently waiting to exact his revenge on the little hedgehog.

Carrey’s return was teased in the teaser where you can hear Robotnik’s devious cackle.

The Sonic film franchise is a delightful anomaly for film adaptations of video games we’re fond of. Most of those movies left a bitter taste in fans’ mouths. By the grace of the heavens and alignment of the stars, Sonic put an end to that rot. Both Sonic films were adored by fans and general audiences alike. They grossed a combined total of $870.8 million. There’s going to be more where that came from, as Paramount showing no signs of slowing down the SCU( Sonic Cinematic Universe). I do not know if that’s an official term, but everyone has been having one since the MCU emerged so let us just go with it.

Paramount is making a Knuckles series on Paramount Plus, and of course, Sonic The Hedgehog 3 which is why we are here.

Jeff Fowler, the mind behind both Sonic films will be stepping into the director’s chair once again for Sonic 3. Neal H. Moritz, Toby Ascher, Toru Nakahara, and Hitoshi Okuno will be onboard as the producers.

Jim Carrey Carries His Movies

Jim Carrey As The Mask

Jim Carrey returning as Robotnik is a pleasant surprise. He has accomplished so much as an actor and as an artist. I can’t honestly think of a movie that wasn’t better off without him, because there is no such thing. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and even more serious films such as Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, and The Truman Show, among many others have a special place in our hearts.

Carrey has done more than enough, he does not owe fans any more movies, but we owe him our gratitude for making days better with his talent. I can’t wait to see him return as Dr. Robotnik for Sonic The Hedgehog 3.

Sonic The Hedgehog 3 will be released in theaters on December 20, 2024.
